The Roman Bath House is located at the Fairfax and Wilkes streets corner of Berkeley Springs State Park. There are nine individual bathing chambers with tubs that hold 750 gallons of spring water heated to 102 degrees. The Roman Baths are open daily and are part of state park operations.

The second floor of the historic Roman Bath House is the Museum of the Berkeley Springs with exhibits on the natural and cultural history of the springs and town. It was established by community volunteers in 1984 and is open regularly in season. The Museum serves as the Morgan County Interpretive Center for the Trail.

Built in 1815, the Roman Bath House is the oldest public building in Berkeley Springs and has been in continuous use for bathing. It was constructed on the site of a 1784 bathhouse that legend claims was built by James Rumsey. A period sketch of the 18th century bathhouse shows five baths “for company” that filled in five minutes and emptied in four. The original bathhouse was described as made of ill-fitting boards.
